First post and need help... Looking for some advice/help 2016 Optima Turbo 43K miles just out of 5 year warranty. 84 Yr old Mother in Law car and she lives 800 miles away. She drove to bank and when leaving drive thru car would not move forward only reverse. When in drive engine would rev up and not move at all. Had towed to KIA dealer and they say it needs and new dual clutch assembly. $2300 and not covered under 10 year drive train warranty. Something does not should right about their diagnoses of the problem. Sounds more like a linkage solenoid problem but that's just a guess. Any ideas???

Normally if only reverse, transmission shot, but were there any codes associated with the problem?
Fluid level, speed sensor etc.
Price doesn't sound right as the OEM DCT lists for $5600 discount $3700 and that doesn't include installation.

No check light at the time of the problem.. According to the KIA service guy the problem is that they need to replace the Clutch assembly. But it sure seem suspicious to me. I'm 3 states away so it put her at the will of the dealership. and according to them it is not covered under the drive train warranty as it's a wear item..
